During the National Rifle Association annual meeting in Indianapolis, Executive Director Chris Cox told a crowd that “real America” would reject the socialist policies currently being pushed in Congress by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and some others.
Cox specifically mentioned Pelosi and Ocasio-Cortez when he said voters would give them a “rude awakening” during the next presidential and congressional election in 2020.
“The socialist wave we warned was coming is here,” Cox said, according to BizPac Review. “And it’s not just the two coasts that are underwater, the wave is hitting the heartland of America. But as this circus goes on, millions of Americans will see how far outside the mainstream these socialists have become.”
“Friends, do you think Nancy Pelosi and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are mainstream in the United States of America?” the NRA director asked. “Or are they in for a rude awakening in November of next year when the real America goes to the polls?”
“I’m talking about the America you and I know: The one where hardworking people put their heads down, mind their own business, raise their families, and do the right thing,” Cox concluded.
Ocasio-Cortez responded to the speech on Twitter where she criticized the NRA director for suggesting her district was not a part of “real America.”
“Civics lesson for the NRA: As much as they may not like it, the Bronx and Queens are part of ‘the real America,’ too,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.
“Wild that the NRA is suggesting the voters of NY-14 aren’t ‘real Americans’ bc they don’t think assault weapons in school classrooms is a good idea,” she added.
“Can ‘the real America’ please stand up… This Ain’t It, Chief!” Omar tweeted in response.
BizPac Review reports:
It’s ironic that Omar — a Somalian refugee — claims to represent “the real America” when she has repeatedly trashed the United States and its longtime ally, Israel.
Two weeks ago, Omar made headlines after trivializing the September 11, 2001 Islamist terrorist attacks, summarizing the awful tragedy by saying, “some people did something.”
The anti-American rhetoric was so offensive that even some of her fellow Muslims trashed Omar, as BizPac Review reported.
As for Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, she has emerged as the de facto leader of the Democrat Party, thanks to her embrace of radical leftist ideas such as socialism, open-borders, and her unwillingness to pay taxes.
Hey AOC, is that what a “real American” would do? Evade taxes while demanding that other Americans pay more than they already do?
“AOC rabidly tweeted about the New Zealand mosque attacks 14 times, but hasn’t tweeted once about the Easter attacks on Christians in Sri Lanka that killed 250 people, including several Americans,” BizPac Review also reports.
According to the report, the socialist policies of some Democrats are being criticized by members of their own party.
Democratic Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy said she is offended by members of her party entertaining the idea of socialism.
“I am offended by this whole conversation about socialism,” Murphy said via BizPac Review. “The idea that in the greatest democracy — the greatest capitalist system in the world — we’re having casual conversations about socialism, offends me.”
